On March 1, the Earth enters a high-speed solar wind stream. A powerful outbreak of polar lights is already being recorded.
Interestingly, an incredibly powerful flash of auroras indicating a geomagnetic storm, according to data from NASA's geomagnetic monitoring data - a geomagite storm has not yet been recorded.
The solar wind blows at a speed of over 500 km / s from the southern hole in the solar atmosphere. Its effect is enhanced by cracks now opening in the earth's magnetic field. The solar wind, pouring through the cracks, ignites the storm.
Among other things, a new coronal ejection has occurred on the Sun, which is most likely directed towards the Earth.
The storm is coming
NASA scientists have published a short information note in which they prepare us for the fact that March in terms of geomagnetic storms will be very "fun".
March is the most geomagnetically active month of the year
Why? This is the Russell-McFerron effect. Cracks open in the Earth's magnetic field during the weeks close to the equinoxes. The solar wind ignites geomagnetic storms. In fact, this is happening right now.
